Effective this month, the law levies a $125 fine for leaving animals in a car when it’s hot enough to harm them and permits animal control officers and police to break in and rescue pets without being liable for damages. “Normally at this time of year, we get around 15 calls a day,” Lead Animal Control Officer Chase Connolly said. “Now we’re getting maybe four or five.” As of this writing, his officers have issued two citations related to the law.
